Power Factor Correction

Fairchild's full line of both stand-alone Power Factor (PFC) controllers and PFC/PWM combo controllers offer crucial cost and energy saving solutions that address the demanding requirements of a diverse range of medium and high power Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) designs.

  • Offerings include both Boundary Conduction Mode (BCM) and Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM)
  • Synchronized clock output to reduce system noise and to synchronize to downstream converter
  • Patented one-pin voltage error amplifier with advanced input

Why Choose Our Power Factor Correction Controllers

  • Fairchild's innovative PFC Controller solutions include Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM), Critical/Boundary Conduction Mode (CrCM/BCM), Interleaved PFC Controllers as well as the PFC plus PWM Combination Controllers.
  • We leverage our advanced processes to integrate the controller's functionality and provide simplified designs, decrease part counts and BOM and provide the level of performance demanded by the world-wide energy regulations and the pursuit of smaller desig
  • All controllers come with integrated protection features such as: soft start, over-voltage protection, open-feedback protection, over-current protection, input-voltage-absent protection, and under-voltage lockout protection.
